The sentiment is an old rubber stamp from My Sentiments Exactly. I removed this portion from the wood and used it with my Mini Misti stamp positioner. The edges of top layer are rubbed with Versamark Ink and dipped in embossing powder. This gives a nice edge on that top layer.
Time will tell if I succeed in continuing to make cards. I'm impressed by the quality of the dies from Taylored Expressions and may need to get more of them.
